Meet a fellow daycare provider at the park, small world because....I interviewed awhile back for a particular family that was giving off the high maintenance vibe. Totally micromanaging the questions, would not put their toddler down or allow them to touch a thing, just clutched the little one like clearly my place was so under par. I just ended the interview, told them I could see that they were uncomfortable so just email me with any questions and sent them off. I saw red flags all over the places and decided to not take this one no matter if the parents wanted me too. SOOOOO.....they end up with this other provider, stay 6 months, leave with no notice/no pay and were micromanaging nightmare helicopter parents just like I thought they would be. Whoppeee! Dodged that bullet
I felt bad for the other provider but she was very new when she took them and ended up having a learning experience for sure. The mom left the provider a super hateful message about a scratch on her daughters face, which the provider told dad about already and keep in mind, this was a 2 year old and things happen.
